Fireside Socks Ready to Dye

The fiber is spun and ready to dye. I have nearly 5 oz. of shetland/mohair blend. It's a 2 ply yarn. It's approximatley finger weight, maybe between finger and sport weight.

Still working on Block 7 of the Loomclass Lapghan/Afghan. Should be finished tomorrow.

Block 6 is Done!!!!

Moving right along, I have completed Block 6 of the Loomclass Lapghan/Afghan. I started Block 7 this morning and am on row 10. Hopefully, I'll be caught up with this class this week. Regarding cables on a loom. It's much easier to do with needles, but it's a nice skill to learn.

WOW!! that table is one ugly color. Certainly doesn't do anything for the block. It will have to do for now.

Happy July

What am I working on? Well first there is this group of loom knitters and I'm on Block 5.
Almost completed it.....yea for me! But the sad news is I'm behind on this group and have Block 6 already waiting for me to start.

Next, I finished spinning some Corridale X and it's on the niddy noddy, getting ready to ply.....hummmmm 2 ply or 3 ply?

Currently on the spindle and wheel are Alpaca from Rainbow Farms in Vernal, Utah. Nice fiber if you need alpaca.

Today I purchased this cool pattern from Pinklemon Twist. So I went stash diving and have decided to card some shetland fiber and some mohair and dye it red for those Fire socks. The fibers are grey, brown, and white so I'm hoping when I dye it that the colors will take up the dye just a little differently and give it a cool look. I'll have to post picture of the process. Wish me luck. Here's the link if you want to see the Fire socks. Enjoy the rest of July!
